A unique POV

As a Muslim mom, who grew up in the west, much of the story is spot-on with what I've experienced. It's interesting to see how the main character walks a fine line in order to stay true to her beliefs. At the same time, the book is funny and not preachy. The author has given voice to a female character (a strong girl who is a practicing Muslim) the likes of whom we have seen very little of in English literature. Bravo!

Well written, explaining the difficulties that young Muslim women face in a very secular society. Also explains some of the misconceptions of the Islamic religion.

I read this in middle school I recommend it.

This book helps students acknowledge the struggles that other people face. There is a need for kids to recognize that all children aren't always in control of their origins, but there isn't any excuse to discriminate because of it.
